Porto forward Jackson Martinez will make a decision in the coming days on where he will play his football next season.

The Colombia international has been linked with a move away from the Estadio Dragao this summer, with top European clubs including Arsenal reportedly keen to acquire the highly-rated striker.

AC Milan last week confirmed their interest in the 28-year-old and reports in the Italian press claim Martinez is on the verge of signing, but he insists he has not made his mind up yet.

"I'm as close to Milan as I am to other clubs," Martinez said to Portuguese sports newspaper A Bola. "In the next few days I will decide my future."

Martinez joined Porto from Chiapas in 2012 and is under contract for another two seasons.

The South American player scored 21 goals in 29 league appearances as his side finished runners-up to Benfica in the Primeira Liga this season.

Martinez is currently in Chile competing at the Copa America with his national team.
